Dog Not Required!
Although we would love to have hundreds of doggies enjoying this Easter event with their families, we know some dogs don’t play well with others and do better at home. If your dog is a social butterfly please bring them in their best Easter costume. They’ll have fun; you’ll have fun and you’ll make awesome memories together.
Put Your Thinking Caps On
This Scavenger Hunt will take you on a journey back in time. You’ll learn interesting tidbits about Muncie, McCulloch Park and other key surrounding locations. You’ll have to figure out riddles and deciper clues. At times you’ll have to measure your steps accurately to find your next clue and will need a magnifying glass and compass at points along the way.
Many of the Scavenger Hunt stops will call for you to post a selfie on Twitter, Facebook and IG. Participants that post with the hashtag #Scavenger2017 and follows the directions correctly will be featured on our website. Plus, participants will be entered into a drawing to win gift cards from Petsmart and other local businesses. Have fun, get creative and share your pictures!
Pre-register before April 14 using our PayPal link and you’ll get a $2.00 discount per person and get 2 free family Easter portraits as a bonus. Kids 13 years old and younger are free.
Price goes up to $8.00 the day of the event.

After you’ve completed the scavenger hunt head back over to the Rendevous Point. Enjoy some Easter treats and get your dog ready for our doggie Easter egg hunt. We’ll be giving out dozens of pre-filled Easter baskets donated by local sponsors, so stick around and see if you win!
